As a kid there was nothing better than opening the mailbox and finding a brand new issue of Nintendo Power. Everyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s knows what I’m talking about. Now Nintendo Power will be shutting its doors.
The news comes from a source over at Ars Technica and is backed up by several tweets from the magazine’s staff discussing plans for the final issues of the magazine. Not sure why, but they have been pulled from Twitter since.
It seems like only yesterday when Nintendo Power published its first issue in the summer of 1988. It was THE gaming magazine at one time. Ars Technica says that Nintendo had become “difficult to work with” and was no longer interested in keeping the brand going.
